Each chakra is said to have petals attached to the circumference of is wheel. Each chakra from the base to the throat, has an increasing number of petals and traditional texts attribute negative qualities to most of these: qualities such as fear, envy, greed, etc. Joseph and Lilian LePage, founders of Integrative Yoga Therapy, describe positive attributes associated with each of the chakras. These are qualities that we can easily affirm whenever we feel a little off balance in one or more of our whirling energy centers.
For example, if we’re not feeling at home in our bodies or our environments, we can say over and over: I am fully and joyfully at home in my body, in my dwelling, in my family and in my community. Below you’ll find a list of the chakras with their positive attributes. Thank you!!!! Joseph and Lilian.
